Full title: FIRST THE GREEN GESTAPO CAME FOR OUR LIGHTBULBS, THEN OUR ICED DRINKS AND HOT SHOWERS. NOW THEY'RE AFTER OUR MEATBALLS...
A truly emetic announcement from the grim but indispensable Swedish flatpack furniture emporium IKEA: they are considering changing the recipe of their most popular food line - meatballs - in order to help save the world from global warming. Says the company's head of sustainability Joanna Yarrow: "We have been working with WWF looking at meatballs and various other food items that we sell and looking at how we can tweak our recipes to give great taste but also perhaps less of an environmental impact. I can assure you that getting that recipe adjusted will have a real cumulative impact."
IKEA - the place you go to, reluctantly, because the furniture is so cheap and practical, not because you want to save the planet for Mother Gaia - actually employs a "head of sustainability"? If that's not a strong dump signal for the stock, I don't know what is.

Hands off my meatballs!
When they came for my toilet paper, I said nothing. But at some point you have to draw the line.
They can take the toilet paper.
But as compensation I want a bidet installed along with endless towel service.
(I tried pinging "Sheryl Crow" but it didn't work.)
Hey! Meat is expensive, and has gone up in the last few years. I suspect this is more about cheaper ingredients and higher profits than saving the fuzzy nosed three teated artic suckerfish or whatever from boiling in mid-ocean.
I get pocketbook anxiety every time I visit the meat counter.
But I’m really curious what a ‘head of sustainability’ does. Such an odd title for a business card. Is there a secretary of sustainability, too? and sustainability file clerks?
Maybe a few more cow farts would have saved us from such a harsh winter.
Grind up your furniture and add it to the mix, dopes!
They don’t make one thing I would waste one cent on.
I like to decide what I want to eat at my discretion, not the diktats of some nanny statists.
Speaking of whom, has anybody checked her out lately to see if she's using just one square? Or maybe people can't get close enough to ask her.
“Hands off my meatballs! “. I’m ok with sacrificing meatball at the alter of the Enviro Nazi Gods. But, better not mess with the hot dogs!
Don’t forget the turkey with provolone on ciabatta roll. That’s the bargain of the house. ;)
It comes down to methane? Every time we work a damaged natural gas main or service I’d think, “we could heat our houses for 200 years with what just blew off into the atmosphere”. Now I’m going to imagine that in flatulence.
The last time I moved I tried to give my couch to Goodwill but they wouldn’t even take it! it’s a perfectly good couch I said, but they said it looks used. Well, duh, of course it’s used.
Bidets are cheap, effective, and readily available as an add-on to a standard toilet.
Exactly! I can safely say that there is not one item in my home that was purchased at IKEA.
They can have my toilet paper, as soon as I’m done with it.
Most large companies employ a head of sustainability now.
One Sheet Sheryl. There’s someone I would definitely not shake hands with!
Well that’s a comforting thought.
We are so silly! Now we want to control cow flatulence! Sheesh!
Their grass fed organic beef is great.
What is to stop the US Government to someday effectively ban meat eating? Much of what happens in this country depends on what California dictates.
They never give up. Never think they will be satisfied with the latest offering. They want total control over everything.
Trust this.. Next they are coming for your Balls.. Don't you dare laugh.. :)
No, nada. That sounds too much like...prarie oysters. I can’t write what I really mean if you get my drift.
~Or I’ve had too much wine with dinner. I really need to stick to bourbon.
In free markets, cheaper is the most honest indicator of how much total energy was consumed and therefore pollution created in production and distribution. Cheaper is usually greener, although cheaper might not be something you want pumping through your non-renewable blood veins.
Ikea probably does not make any money off their food court. They use it as a food reward to train you like a monkey. That's why these stores always put their monkey chow at the end.
